Sorry, but the crocodile has opened his mouth & let us see his teeth .... he can't fool us into thinking he's pool float any more.

I doubt he would even think about it, but Newt could be the third party tea party candidate. I don’t care about splitting the vote because romney maybe more of a sleaze than 0.
This could just be my anger talking, but at this moment it is how I feel.

I’ll write in Sarah or even “Your Fired Ego Hair” before I’ll vote for Romney.

OTOH maybe the later will run third party, get SP as VP and then resign.....Well a gal can dream.

Don’t usually swear, but a fellow freeper use to start or end his post with Just Dam....and tonight it seems appropriate.

Actually damno is a latin word for stop so I suppose a prayer to stop Romney would be appropriate...Lord forgive me.

Without a doubt. Romney won, NOT by selling the strengths of Romney, but by running over 10,000 negative ads against Gingrich.

If he goes on, sooner or later Romney’s going to have to realize there’s probably 1/3 of the Republican party that isn’t convinced he’s the right guy. He can’t win by shredding the competition forever.

One commentator said Gingrich’s problem was the last of a cohesive message. He was all over the map and failed to present a centralized message.

I'm afraid that is "our Newt" in a nutshell (sigh).


Recall the flack the DeLay threads got when he said that was one of Gingrich's problems when he was Speaker.

my son said the same thing to me not 5 minutes ago, LOL. He is frustrated as is my other son, who cast his first vote this primary (turned 18 in nov). They are very involved politically and can debate libs under the table. They are ready to go third party, they feel this is ridiculous. I felt the same way as a youth and cast my first 2 votes for Ross Perot back in the day LOL.

We will need to find a way to get us some representation- do they stop taxing us if we have none?

Broward has zero percent reporting (Jewish and redneck)and Dade (Cuban), where Gingrich is also strong, is only 35% in.

This is no blowout, in fact, its a tactical defeat for the HIGH PRIEST FROM PLANET KOLOB, who spent 15 million to buy 50 delegates.

Drudge and the GOP-E assasinated Newt last Thursday like they did back in the 90’s. Newt was running just a few points behind until then, and it all went south after that.

My husband and are talking and discussing this and are very bummed out right now.

He said, Newt can still pull this out, if he has the money backing. We are sending money.

On the downside, down the road... He said that WE and the teaparty people,IF Newt can't make it, should vote for myth, if only for the reason to have a voice, if he beats Obama.

Now while I am cursing him as he speaks, please don't call me a troll.

His reasoning is, there is a bigger problem we will be facing, which is the Supreme Court. We all have strong voices with our house and Senate representatives and if we can get control of the Senate and keep the house, then we have a voice to keep Mitt in check. Where as, we have no control over Obama.

Now I don't like any of this and I am not sure I could vote for McCain's clone.

Most here, I did, that in 08. But long term thinking is perplexing to me.

All I can say is for right now, get out and man the Newt stations in your area so I do not have to even think about the consequences!

I am just so in shock right now, maybe I am not thinking clearly, so don't bash me please :(

31 + 7 + 13 = 51 which is larger than 47.

The problem with that calculation is that many of Paul's supporters would go Libertarian or similar, if Paul dropped out. They would not necessarily go to Santorum or Gingrich.

Thank you for saying that. We need to be reminded. Even if this is my last political adventure with the Republicans, until they deliver to me MY candidate, and MY Tea Party stacked to the gills on the RNC, already funded and endorsed with a quill in his hand and all of the above on a platter, with nothing left to do but for the announcement. We have already enough glass under our finger nails to last a life time.

Can I even express how DONE I will be with the Republican Party? I don’t think so.

But for Newt, and after that it ends there. This would include the Trickster Rickster Santorum.

Romney won’t marginalize Israel like Obama. That’s one plus. Things will not be the same with a Romney presidency as an Obama presidency. They might not be the exact way we want them, but still better.

We can look at the situation as it stands now, work hard for a conservative congress to hold Romney’s feet to the fire, then pull up our big kid panties and vote in the general. That’s the grown up way to handle disappointment and frustration; don’t give in to emotion the way the left does. We are the side that uses reason over emotion.

Supreme Court nominations is not a reason to continue to enable the GOP. The long term viability of our country as a whole is more important than short term impacts of nominations. Remember, Congress makes the laws and controls the money. They can get around any strange ruling of SCOTUS.

Also, what good is it to have a conservative court if the whole country is controlled by socialists? The SCOTUS has yet to stop the progressive march to the left.
